The Amenfi Central District Assembly has initiated efforts to reshape the Manso Amenfi-Bawdie road, following concerns the poor nature of the stretch is negatively impacting the lives of people there.

Despite the 20 kilometer road being awarded on contract, the contractor has since not reported to the site.

The District Chief Executive for the area, Patrick Hockson Amponteng says “are technical challenges.”

“Having knowledge of the untold hardships the poor state of the roads have brought onto the people, the assembly, while waiting for the contractor to report has reshaped the road from its Internally Generated Fund. This will help ameliorate the plights of road user and residents in the area,” the DCE told journalists.

The assembly has deployed heavy machinery to smoothen the surface of the road. The work is being done in collaboration with the Amenfi West District Assembly.

He says the reshaping has become necessary due to the dilapidated nature of the road. “It is riddled with potholes, and part of the stretch is eroded, making driving difficult and dangerous for drivers,” he observed.

Farming is the main livelihood of residents along the stretch and the poor road has made it impossible for them to move produce to the urban areas for sale. “It is long overdue that the road gets a facelift. Plans are far advanced to get the contractor back to site to ameliorate the transportation difficulties faced by commuters and motorists,” he told the media.

He says the reshaping and leveling of the road is a temporal measure to relieve the people, as issues are sorted out with the contractor to permanently fix the road by overlaying it with bitumen.
